Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West and Pharrell Williams Sample Thom Yorke

A new Lupe Fiasco tune has appeared online that samples the Thom Yorke track ‘The Eraser.’The song, titled ‘US Placers’, also features hip-hop heavyweights Kanye West and Pharrell Williams rapping over the sample track.The three rappers’ verses are loosely organized around Yorke’s haunting refrain: “The more you try to erase me, the more that I appear.”Very hard-hitting, ‘US Placers’ sees Pharrell rap about the recent Virginia Tech Massacre, while Kanye has a dig at MTV. Sadly, it’s unlikely to get a full release unless the Thom Yorke sample is given the green light by his record label.The trio of rappers are thought to be going under the name of Child Rebel Soldier, with Lupe telling Billboard earlier this month it was a “top secret project” that featured “another superstar rapper and someone who is a rapper/producer.”You can listen to the full track here
